"Hccauso of his ability mid fnlrm-KH

Achl Oils morning. "As far as I
know, Cathcart has been a good and

Qn Conditions in
"KliniiBli.il Is a pretty tight HrKlsh
corporation und the American, thanks
to Judge Wltflcy and some other
things, has very little show," said At
torney K. A. Douthitt In sieaklng of
tho town that has been his homo for
a short lime, and which ho gave up
to i copen nftlcci In Honolulu.
"Tho American Is not rated very
high In Shanghai; his own govern
ment and his own people do not stand
by him, and the climatic conditions
are such (lint n man would need havo
a great fortune in sight to Justify his
living in tho place.
"Tlicro ns been a very general de
pression throughout Iho Orient and
i-hanghal has suffered with tho rest.
Many Arms have gone out of business.
Tho American merchant does not
stand so ery high because, In his al
Icgcd development of tho Oriental
market he has used lax methods. As
a matter of fact tho American Is so
busy making money at homo that I
don't blleo lie euies moro than two
cents about the Oriental market. That
Is tho way It seems oicr (here, for wo
know that if the good honest Amer
ican once tackles a thing with earn
est enthusiasm ho can win.
"As for a lawyer, tho Wllfley (sillcy
has put him lit a disadvantage at tho
ery nutsot. Our court requires n
special examination, whllo too llrltlsli
barristers lira admitted on their home
credentials. This nt (hu start causes
the Chinese business mail tn look with
suspicion upon the American. If his
own government docs not trust h(m,
tho Chinese naturally figures that ho
should he on the. lookout. Ho tho
American Is handicapped.
"Fnrthcrninro tho American busi

Pacific Malt and tho Standard Oil
people are the only large American
concerns that employ American at
